Portland no. 1

(first two images at Kenny & Zukes; next two at Stumptown; skateboards at Cal Skate Skateboards)

Hi from Portland! This city feels relaxed and comfortable; we're enjoying our time here. As far as the boys are concerned, anywhere with a pool is paradise. We bought skateboards today and they rode them all over the city. I think Alexi is enjoying them as much as the boys are - I was surprised he didn't buy himself one. I suspect he's first planning to ask his mother if his childhood skateboard is still around somewhere. We spent a bit of time in an arcade, and I was amazed at the number of adults playing video games in the middle of a weekday.

More soon.

I loved the roses everywhere when I visited Portland!

Are you here now? I'm staying across the street from that first restaurant. I'd love to grab a cup of coffee if you have time. Xoxo

They had to have *Cal* Skate (brand? name of shop?) Skateboards - it was meant to be! :)
Have fun!
